  • 1st ride down there on the advice of the Manager of the campsite. We were on heatwave alert and were looking for a ride to be refresh, to do with children and teenager. Drive ombarge as promised. Several possible hikes depending on the participants, time and envy. We finally got to the waterfall of the DOE after having crossed stunts, a ferruginous source, the tooth a grudge, cows, and stunning scenery. This walk we enjoyed so much, that we returned to stop half way, picnic, and made snowshoes games, frisbee and land art.

  • I go back every year. Alone, with family or friends. Sculptures home to learn a little more.
